I used to import violins up until 2003. This one is a late 2001 and was one of the few I kept because it was exceptionally good. It hung in a climate-controlled recording studio up until last month and now I have decided to sell it. The company that made Vivaldi violins stopped making them in 2003.
It is hard to find much information about them by searching but anyone that plays will know its value very quickly. This violin is scratch/ding free. The bow that goes with it is good but a serious player might want to upgrade bows at some point.
The least I have seen one of these go for was 2 years ago at $1000 so hopefully, someone will find this as a good deal. As I mentioned, this one was exceptional and that is why I set it aside for myself.
Come play it or have someone else play it and hear for yourself.
